Paralympic Hopes

Description

The story of visually impaired, young swimmer Michael Reeve, who is undertaking a strict training regime to keep on target for his goal of representing Britain at the 2012 Paralympics.

Michael, from Guthlaxton College in Leicester, is heading towards his dream by competing in the UK School Games, but it has not been an easy journey to make it this far.

Disability swimming coach Jil Stidever describes how when she first saw Michael swim he could barely make two lengths, but his sheer determination and positive attitude made her think he had talent.

With the help of his family and inspiring coach Michael has gone from non-swimmer to elite level in only three years and his Paralympic dream is only getting closer.
